Hmm, the last part of my message got garbled. Let me try that again.

I meant to say that the even strings in the "<insert-documentation>" tags in 
pyside itself are not showing up as docstrings. I assume that those worked at 
some point in the past or the "<insert-documentation> tag would not exist. Is 
this a bug or are we missing something?
